Crystals certainly are beautiful objects, for they were created by God. Portions of God’s glorious heavenly city, the New Jerusalem, will be constructed from crystal.

The Hindu’s teach that there are seven main “energy” centers found in the body and are called chakra’s. The word chakra is derived from Sanskrit, meaning “wheel”, or “circle of life”. Chakras are located along the spine and influence different nerve systems, organs and glands with their energy. They believe that the energy that becomes coiled in the base of the spine (root chakra) is called Kundalini.
